Model and TV host Chrissy Teigen has deleted tens of thousands of tweets after conspiracies resurfaced that she was on flight logs aboard convicted pedophile Jeffrey Epstein’s “Lolita Express.”
The conspiracies — and Teigen’s wild Twitter deletion sessions — reappeared in the wake of the arrest of Ghislaine Maxwell, Epstein’s long-time confidant who has been accused of procuring underage girls for him and for other powerful men.
Pushing back on Twitter Tuesday, Teigen also noted that the renewed attention has made her “worried for her family.”
**Warning: Strong language
“I actually deleted 60,000 tweets because I cannot fucking STAND you idiots anymore and I’m worried for my family. Finding me talking about toddlers and tiaras in 2013 and thinking you’re some sort of f**king operative,” she wrote in response to Chrissie Mayr, a comedian and podcaster.
“F**king detectives that can’t even do simple subtraction to see how much was deleted. That’s who we are working with here,” she added.
Actor James Woods poked fun at Teigen, comparing her to 2016 Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton, who deleted tens of thousands of emails from her time as President Obama’s secretary of state — some of which had been subpoenaed by Congress.

The accusations of Teigen, 34, being associated with Epstein began in October.
She said that she and husband John Legend, 41, were being implicated as having been listed on flight logs aboard his private jet, dubbed the Lolita Express, which he reportedly used to fly underaged girls and powerful men to Little St. James, which was nicknamed “Pedophile Island.”
“u know what is not great? I still have to read on social media many times a day that John and I are pedophiles and look at photoshopped/miscaptioned photos of us on ‘Epstein Island’ and I just have to deal with it because ‘people are crazy these days,’” she wrote on Twitter Oct. 22.
Teigen has also had to fend off allegations of being linked, sexually, to disgraced Hollywood mogul Harvey Weinstein because she and Legend appeared in a photo with him once, she says.

As for the allegations linking her to Epstein, she also lamented having to prove a negative.
“this I don’t get. everyone thinking I’m guilty because I’m defensive. You understand you are calling me a pedophile, correct?” Teigen wrote in response to a tweet that is no longer available.
“when pedo ghislaine sings like a canary (if she doesn’t die) and we have nothing to do [w]ith this, I know for a fact it won’t go away. They’ll just think of another excuse. It is extremely disheartening. I don’t know how to stop this. [I] don’t think anyone quite gets it,” Teigen said in another tweet.
Despite her denials, however, other Twitter users posted screenshots of alleged Teigen tweets in which she may have made questionable comments about pedophilia.

Regarding Maxwell, reports on Tuesday claimed that she is secretly married, but has yet to reveal the identity of her spouse. The disclosure came as she appeared in court, via video link, to plead not guilty to allegations she is linked to Epstein’s sex trafficking rings.
Prosecutors made the disclosure to demonstrate that Maxwell has not been forthcoming with investigators and could be a flight risk.
She was denied bail during the hearing.
Reports noted Tuesday as well that Maxwell had former British military operatives guarding her hideout in New Hampshire, and that FBI agents who arrested her discovered a cellphone wrapped in tinfoil to avoid tracking and detection.
